Since its unveiling back in 2022, Q’s 8.6 Blackout has been round in high demand in the shooting community. Only a few ammunition manufacturers make 8.6 BLK, and it sells out quickly when restocked. The new round will increase demand even more once B&T joins the fray. B&T has recently announced their Advanced Precision Rifle that is chambered in 8.6 BLK. The new bolt action rifle from B&T will be integrally suppressed and capable of accurately putting subsonic 8.6 BLK rounds on target at 400 yards. Twice the distance of subsonic 300 BLK. The APR will be the bigger brother to the 300 BLK variant of the SPR 300 by B&T.

Information on the B&T APR8.6 is limited. B&T has made available an infographic with a short description of the capabilities of its new integrally suppressed bolt action rifle.
